[resolved] Contact Forms 7 ignoring field length specifications (3 posts)

    I am trying to create a form with the latest version of Contact Form 7 on a site using the Politico theme. (WordPress 3.3.1) I'm having several challenges--why the heck are the fields right smack up against the left edge of the screen?--one of which is that no matter how I change the field length specifications (minimum, max length, etc.), all the fields show up some default length.

    Any ideas? I guess I should add that this is true for TEXT fields and TEXTAREA fields. I seem to have no control over them.

    The website is: http://www.alec-destroys-democracy.org
    The page is : JOIN US

    thanks for any help,

    In the wppolitico/style.css line #387:

    /*---FORM STUFF---*/
    input[type="password"] {padding: 5px; width:170px; margin:5px 0 0 0;}

    This width:170px; specifies the width of the field. Change the size or remove it.

    Outstanding! Thank you, Takayuki. I would never have found that.
